G18: Red Sox 7, Orioles 6

Orioles - 020 001 003 - 6 17  0
Red Sox - 000 010 60x - 7 9 1
Another game that was a bit more difficult than it ought to have been. A pair of three-run homers -- Marco Scutaro and Kevin Youkilis -- gave the Sox a 7-3 lead in the seventh, but Ramon Ramirez and Jonathan Papelbon nearly tossed it away.

Ram2 stranded two Birds in the eighth, but with one out in the ninth, he allowed a long home run to Adam Jones and a double to Nick Markakis. Papelbon came in and was hit for three straight singles, by Miguel Tejada, Matt Weiters, and Luke Scott, which put the potential tying run on second. Bot recovered and struck out both Ty Wigginton (who had been 4-for-4) and Rhyne Hughes (who singled twice in his major league debut).

Jason Varitek hit his 4th dong of the year in the fifth.
Example
Brian Matusz / John Lackey
Scutaro, SS
Pedroia, 2B
Martinez, DH
Youkilis, 1B
Lowell, 3B
Varitek, C
Hall, RF
Hermida, LF
McDonald, CF
In addition to their horrible 2-15 start to 2010, the Orioles are 1-14 at Fenway Park dating back to July 2008. ... However, lefty Matusz has been the winning pitcher in both of their victories.

Why didn't Wieters pull off his mask on that pop up? I'd think that would be SOP for a catcher...shed the blinders.

nick said...

That's some clean fielding!

Any chance that fan gets ejected?

Benjamin said...

Hey, why not have our backup outfielders collide and go on the DL too.

nick said...

Granted they have two runs and they keep getting on base, but I'm not feeling threatened yet. What a low-key game. I would like to see a few Sox runs, though.

redsock said...

To play tricks when you're tryin' to be so quiet.

L-girl said...

Oo, Amy must have loooved this one.

When I left work it was 7-3 but I thought I should check the score before bed, half-wondering if we lost 8-7. Hmm.

You guys are SO lucky I was not threading during the ninth inning. Heard in the car as we drove home from Provincetown and almost had a coronary. I hate him!
